The last time Iowa atheists put up bus ads, they were quickly taken down (and then later put back up), a bus driver refused to do her job because an atheist ad was on her bus, and the governor complained.
All that because of this *horribly* offensive banner:
So what are the Iowa Atheists & Freethinkers doing now?
Well, with the publicity they got last time, they’re obligated to do a repeat performance!
This time, they’re using the following ad:
[Iowa Atheists and Freethinkers spokesperson Lily] Kryuchkov says: “Simply because it’s kind of a difficult time for non-believers, because everybody around you is going to church, there’s always religious charities, there’s religious songs and stuff like that, and people feel really alone and kind of left out. And so we just wanted to speak to them and say ‘hey we know that you are a good person too’, basically.”
… Kryuchkov says the group is not out to shut down religious groups.
Kryuchkov says that has never been their intent and they are “not at war with anybody.” She says they’re just speaking to the people that are like them and share their views and are open to dialogue with people who don’t share their views and we can all co-exist…
The ads, once again, are courtesy of the United Coalition of Reason.
Let’s see whose feathers get ruffled this time around…
